The food safety testing market is gaining growing level of importance worldwide owing to continual increase in number of food-borne disease outbreaks, increasingly stringent regulations on food safety, globalization of food trade, sustained number of food recalls, among others. Food safety is threatened by microbial pathogens, viruses, toxins, genetically modified organism content, pesticides, food allergens and others.

Food contamination now-a-days is quickly becoming a worldwide issue, that is raising the concern for adequate food safety testing methods and procedures. Food-related queries and complaints are continuously rising with time, which reflects a growing concern of government authorities and consumers. These reasons put a huge pressure on food companies to ensure food safety.

The global food safety testing market is anticipated to expand at a steady rate through 2021.

Food Safety Testing Market by Contaminant - Among contaminant, testing for pathogens dominated the food safety testing market. Toxins represents the second largest segment within the food safety testing market being followed by Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) at the third spot in 2015. Pesticide is the fourth leading contaminant with around XX% share of the food safety testing market in 2015.

Food Safety Testing Market by Pathogen - In 2015, salmonella testing dominated the global market for food pathogen testing owing to the large number of foodborne outbreaks due to Salmonella in foods such as meat & poultry, dairy, processed food, and fruits & vegetables. E-coli testing is the second leading segment of the food pathogen testing market being followed by Campylobacter and Listeria. Campylobacter and Listeria food testing segment is competing closely with each other to grab maximum share of the global food pathogen testing market.

Food Safety Testing Market by Food Type - The global food safety testing market is dominated by processed food and meat & poultry products as maximum number of illnesses have been associated with these applications globally. These two segment together accounted for over 60% share of the total food safety testing market in 2015. Dairy and dairy products is the third leading application of food safety testing market being followed by fruits and vegetables.

Food Safety Testing Market by Region - Geographically, North America is at the forefront of food safety testing market, accounting for lion’s share of the market in 2015. Western Europe is the second leading region for food safety testing market and it is likely to remain at this position throughout the forecasting period. Japan captured third highest share of the global food safety testing market in 2015 being followed by China. The Asia-Pacific market is driven by stringent food safety regulations and the trend of globalization in food supply trade.

Food Safety Testing Market by Method / Technology - Immunodiagnostics accounted for largest share of the food safety testing market being followed by traditional microbiology. Traditional microbiology market share is declining year on year owing to the time consuming and labor intensive factors associated with the traditional methods. Molecular diagnostics have the potential to revolutionize quality testing in food production. It is anticipated that molecular diagnostics will capture XX% share of the food safety testing market by 2021. Due to the health and safety risks posed by chemical, microbiological and environmental contaminants, analytical methods are increasingly becoming a centerpiece of food safety programs.
